There is nothing so delicious as a sun-ripened fig that you have managed to keep from the birds or wasps.
I'll fight you for them, Dove! I beat off a hornet so I could eat a fig at Aberglasney Garden in Carmarthenshire.
The joy of UK figs is that they don't have seeds, just wonderful flesh. Yum.
PS I do think you are mad to get rid of a bearing fig tree.
